The 2011 NCAA basketball predictions are here, and we're breaking down the entire Southwest Region so you have an idea of what to look for when you're filling your bracket out.
There are a lot of big matchups in the Southwest.
Kansas, which is ranked second in the latest Associated Press poll behind Ohio State, received the one-seed here. Along with the Jayhawks, there are some Southwest teams that have been the subject of bubble talk, such as USC and VCU.
We could debate the merits of the bubble teams all day, but it's time to talk about the games we know are going to happen. We'll be talking about the Southwest Region from the play-in game, all the way down to the most difficult matchups to select.
If you have any thoughts or questions, even if they don't pertain to the Southwest Region, make sure to leave them below. Who do you have winning the entire thing?
